Baby Food - Broccoli Carrot Puree For Babies

Broccoli is a good source of vitamin c and also contains beta carotene, folic acid, omega 3 and packed with many other wonderful nutrients. It can be combined  with other veggies like carrots or potatoes.

When you are introducing something new to your baby, always give in a smaller portion and then gradually increase the amount. Lets see the recipe…

Ingredients

Broccoli – 4 florets

Carrot – 1, Peeled & cubed

Formula Milk – As required

Preparation

Clean the veggies. Peel the carrot and cube it. Dice the florets to small size.

Add the diced carrot and broccoli florets to a pan with 1 cup water let it boil.

Cook until tender ( will take 10-12 mins).

Prepare some formula milk as per pack guidelines . Let the veggies cool a bit and puree it using some formula milk.

Transfer to a feeding bowl.

Adjust the puree consistency using some more formula milk if you find it so thick.

Feed this healthy puree to your baby.

Notes:

  • You can also steam the veggies (will take 10-15mins).
  • Use only formula milk or breast milk or some boiled water for preparing baby food.
  • The texture of the puree purely depends up on you.
  • To make the puree on a sweeter side always select a sweet carrot.
  • It may cause gas in some babies.
